Child LaborerDear Father of all, compassionate and loving, relieve the suffering of the children of this world.

They live with poverty, neglect, violence and hunger. They endure endless privation, and grow up without love and nurturing.

So many causes and campaigns, churches and temples, palaces and towers of greed, while the children cry in the darkest corners of squalor, debasement and tragedy.

Even for those children in fine homes, surrounded by comfort, sheltered behind class and wealth, how many have love, virtuous guidance, tender understanding and empathy?

The children are the jewels of society, the treasure of every nation. But they are neglected like dross,  rubbish.

The children are the voiceless majority.

Shelter them and bless them, Lord. Nurture and love them. But above all, turn the hearts of all who see them. Let us never ignore their needs. Give us the fortitude to protect them, the will to work selflessly, tirelessly for them, and the understanding to love them unconditionally.

Peace, peace, peace be unto all.

Muslim_at_prayer_in_Ortakoy_MosqueAs I lay myself down to sleep, let me remember, Master, that it is at your feet that I slumber.

May my thoughts be of nothing but you, my wishes be to love and serve you, and my dreams be filled with the sense of your presence.

Keep my loved ones safe and content.

Hold all troubles at bay.

Grant that the morning may bring me the sense of peace that comes with the knowledge of your boundless love for me.

May the new day bring an end to suffering.

I give myself over to your purposes. Grant that I may give myself without reservation or thought of myself.

Let my day be filled with you, dedicated to you, sanctified by you.

Thank you, Lord, for your endless blessings. There is no greater miracle than the love with which you shower us.

May every hour find me praising you. May I ceaselessly worship you with all that I do. Make my life long that I may adore you for many years to come. But should my life be cut short, may I die chanting your holy name, and be reborn into a family who loves you.

Peace, peace, peace be into all.
